Karen Robards

I loved this Review of THE BLACK SWAN OF PARIS so much that I had to share.

Robin Loves Reading rated it: it was amazing
Five stars

I have read countless historical fiction books over the last couple of years, and I would say this book by Karen Robards is by far one of the best ones that I have ever read..... This remarkable story is equally heartbreaking and touching. The romance in the story was incredibly touching....The emotion left me completely wrecked at times. All the while, the danger never let up. Reading of that terrible time in history is always difficult, but this book was so well-written and managed to capture my attention from beginning to end.
